Weather predictions and marketing corn stover as biomass will be the subjects of two talks offered at the June 25-26 Hay & Forage Expo, set for the Central Iowa Expo in Boone, IA.

Renowned climatologist Elwynn Taylor, Iowa State University (ISU) Extension, will offer insights on weather patterns for the rest of the growing season during the Lunch & Learn session on June 25. The next day, Matt Darr, ISU ag engineer, will discuss how to manage and market corn stover as biomass for cellulosic biorefineries.

This year’s Hay & Forage Expo, as in past years, will offer the newest hay-harvesting tools during the largest two-day demonstration event in the country. The latest hay and forage production technology, as well as displays from major and short-line equipment manufacturers, will encompass a 10-acre exhibit field.

Hay & Forage Grower, as well as Wallaces Farmer, The Farmer and Wisconsin Agriculturist, are hosts of the annual expo. For more information, visit
